Four of Pentacles

When the Four of Pentacles is upright in a Tarot reading, it means you need to be careful about the level of control you're trying to exert. Some control is necessary in most situations, and you need to be firm when a situation becomes chaotic. However, you don't need to control every move made by the people around you. The Four of Pentacles also means that change is being opposed. People around you may try to maintain the status quo, or maybe you are the one who's resistant to change even when you know it's the right thing to do. Remember that full control is impossible. People need to be able to determine their own paths.

When the Four of Pentacles is reversed in a Tarot reading, it means that you're ready to let go. Maybe you're ready to move on from toxic people or situations or let go of the past. You might also be feeling generous with your resources. Don't let this generosity get too extreme or someone may take advantage of you. This card can also be a good sign that you've stopped trying to control the people in your life.
